Improve instructions on how to use BXML in an application



      All demos and documentation emphasize the use of BXML for specifying the user interface.
      All demos are implemented as applets where the system is apparently able to "find" the BXML file that it needs to create the UI.

      Unfortunately, when anyone attempts to use BXML in an actual desktop application, using the proper "ScriptApplication" class and setting the "src" property, the application keeps generating an error saying that it "cannot find" the BXML file.

      There are no instructions anywhere in the documentation about deploying a BXML file with a Pivot application. There is nothing saying where the file should be, how to get the ScriptApplication to find it, or any demos showing how to deploy a desktop application in general. There are no real instructions even for deploying BXML- based Applets!

      This is a "show- stopper" making Pivot's BXML mechanism unusable for most applications, in particular desktops.
      If people are to use BXML for most applications, some deployment instructions are seriously needed...
